Weekly Trust - - New - Nabob Og­bonna, Abaka­liki Pe­ter Moses, Abeokuta

The Ebonyi State APC Chair­man, Hon. Nwachukwu Eze, told Daily Trust that vot­ing went on peace­fully in the state yes­ter­day.

Eze who ex­pressed con­fi­dence in Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari’s ad­min­is­tra­tion, main­tained that he re­mained the state’s only choice for the 2019 pres­i­den­tial elec­tion.

“I must tell you that the ex­er­cise is very peace­ful, there is no se­cu­rity chal­lenge any­where in the wards,” he said.

But our cor­re­spon­dent who was at the party head­quar­ters along Abaka­liki-Afikpo high­way ob­served that some gov­er­nor­ship as­pi­rants were in a meet­ing with stake­hold­ers of the state to har­monise ahead of Sun­day’s gu­ber pri­maries. He did not no­tice any vot­ing.

Ogun adopts voice vote

Voice vote was adopted for the APC pres­i­den­tial pri­mary across wards in Ogun State, as mon­i­tored by our cor­re­spon­dent yes­ter­day. The ex­er­cise was largely peace­ful with mas­sive turnout of party mem­bers.

At Ward 13, Ig­bore-Agoba in Abeokuta South Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment, hun­dreds of party mem­bers were asked to af­firm the sole pres­i­den­tial as­pi­rant, Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari, through a voice vote. Sim­i­lar sce­nario played out at Ward 12 and Ward 6, both in Abeokuta South Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment.

At Ibara orile Ward 16 Abeokuta North Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment, how­ever, Op­tion A4 was adopted by the party ex­ec­u­tive.

Speak­ing with jour­nal­ists shortly af­ter the ex­er­cise at Ward 13, Ig­bore - Agoba, a former state gov­er­nor, Chief Oluse­gun Osoba, de­scribed the ex­er­cise as peace­ful and or­derly.
